Over the past twenty years Montreal-based artist Hannah Alpha has been working to refine and simplify her expression movement or of the human body in movement. Her work is abstract and reached an important milestone when she started practicing the centuries old art of Tai Chi. Because of its repeated movements, Tai Chi develops an intensification of consciousness of the unity between being and awareness. That feeling permeates throughout her art.
Hannah Alpha has liberated her work from all superfluous forms. With a few minimalist lines, the artist illustrates movement and/or the human body in all its sensuality and its simplest expression.
She has participated in solo or collective exhibitions in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. Hannah Alpha’s work is in private and public collections around the world including the Canada Council Art Bank (Ottawa), the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Hull), the Artothèque of the Gabrielle-Roy library (Quebec City), Loto-Québec (Montreal), Sony Music (Toronto), the Royal Bank (Montreal), Chateau Champlain (Montreal), Sanofi Aventis (Laval), Collart Collection (Montreal) and the Hyatt Regency Hotel (Jeddah & Riyadh).
Hannah Alpha has taught drawing and painting at the Saidye Bronfman Center for the Arts in Montreal for fifteen years. She is an active member of the Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels du Québec (RAAV) and of Atelier Circulaire.
